A top EU energy official said the "EU might have a problem" if it did not fill its gas storage after Russia announced this morning it would stop supplying gas to Ukraine.
Gazprom said early this morning it was reducing shipments of gas to Ukraine, following the breakdown of talks between Kiev and Moscow to resolve a pricing row, brokered by the European Commission.
The EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger urged Russia and Ukraine to reconsider the compromise put forward by the EU.
